As the public and businesses try to recover from the global disruption and losses caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important to take action and come together to help communities, families, and businesses get back on their feet.
The initiative to re-open local businesses and re-start the economy has unfortunately triggered an increase in COVID-19 cases. Although it is extremely important to continue to follow preventative measures such as social distancing and wearing face masks, in some cases it is not as simple due to budget restraints or public work environments.
In this time of unprecedented need, Mayan Technologies is donating 10,000 masks to help keep our community safe. In coordination with the Allen-Fairview Chamber of Commerce, Mayan Technologies' CTO, Sergio Prieto, along with Business Developer Brenda Huerta, met with AFD Division Chief Danny Williams and Allen Fire Chief Jonathan Boyd to personally deliver 4,000 masks. These will be used to help protect our community and will also be donated to residents in need, nonprofits, home health care workers, and other first responders.
The effort to support our community does not stop here. We will continue to distribute an additional 6,000 masks to other nearby organizations such as the school district in Collin County and Christian Care Centers. We are also working together with the McKinney Chamber of Commerce and the City of McKinney Emergency response to make donations to other areas in our community with the greatest need for face masks. Our goal is to create a partnership with local commerce to support the well-being of individuals and businesses in the area as well as impulse public safety.
We invite everyone to support your local community in any way possible. This is a time to remain unified and overcome this health crisis together.
